Sorry for the late reply. I think this is making things worse. It's
obviously okay to add a system KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_HV_CPUID, and I guess
it makes sense to have bits in there that require to enable a
capability. For example, KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID has a couple bits such
as X2APIC, that we return even if they require in-kernel irqchip.

For the vCPU version however we should be able to copy the returned
leaves to KVM_SET_CPUID2, meaning that unsupported features should be
masked.
